[1] The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland comprises four separate countries, England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.  While central rule at Westminster remains, various Acts have provided for the devolution of power back to Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland in certain areas, one of these being education.  One notable item regarding the devolved powers can be seen in education in Wales.  The Welsh Assembly has stated that its ultimate aim is a bilingual Wales, where people can transition easily between English and Welsh.
